Reason I asked for pic is because you said Nano tang and with selling points these days you never know what misleading name people may come up with lol. Naso's get fairly large and need nothing less than 180g for full size (about 15-18"), but don't have much of a growth rate compared to some of its bretheren. They tend to not be aggressive towards conspecifics and will school rather well when juvenile, ime. Feed seaweed at least 2-3 times weekly.

If you live near an Asian market you can get strips of nori for cheap in bulk. What's used to wrap sushi

Public aquariums feed Romaine because it is inexpensive and they fortify other foods into the diets to balance nutritional deficiencies, not to mention it occupies the fish. I'm not saying you shouldn't do it, but keep a varied diet for nutritional purposes.
